What are some things that I can do to make myself mentally stronger?

Question by jewel: What are some things that I can do to make myself mentally stronger?
I used to be very focused and disciplined about diet, exercise, work and spending, but now I just can’t seem to make myself maintain that discipline.

One of the seminal books on the science of weight management is by Dr. Neal Barnard: “Breaking the Food Seduction.” Another excellent book about overcoming our human tendency to fall into common addictive traps, including food addiction, is:

“The Pleasure Trap: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health & Happiness”
by Douglas J. Lisle and Alan Goldhamer

There are several additional books that can help you:

For body building (do not follow the dietary advice):

“Body for Life” by Bill Phillips (Available at libraries and most thrift stores)

For a healthier diet and the science supporting this diet:

“The China Study” by Professor T. Colin Campbell, or
“Eat More, Weigh Less” by Dr. Dean Ornish (Available at libraries and most thrift stores)

For greater mental health and clarity:

“Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth” by Dr. Brad Blanton
